Water levels from Harvey have made the underpass just north of Center St., where Houston Ave. tucks under the rail lines, impassable. But there are consequences to trying to drive around the underpass structure, as this photo taken yesterday afternoon by a Swamplot reader attests: The ground drops off sharply on the south side of the tracks to the west of the street, and that’s not so easy to see if you’re driving south.

Avoiding High Water
That’s a rail bridge. The police shoved it over the side and out of the way.
Whomever is driving on ANY flooded street anywhere on this planet: DON’T. Turn around – don’t drown !
